Occupy Wall Street: George Soros Understands Protesters’ Pain
IB Times ^ | 10/04/2011

Posted on 10/04/2011 8:55:56 AM PDT by Beckett08

Billionaire investor George Soros said he sympathizes with the protesters who have camped out near Wall Street in New York and inspired similar anti-corporate demonstrations in other major cities across the United S

While announcing a $40-million aid pledge at the United Nations for rural African development, Soros told media that he understood the protesters’ rage over big government bailout for banks

"Actually I can understand their [protesters] sentiment, frankly," he said.

"And at the same time the decision not to inject capital into the banks, but to effectively relieve them of their bad assets and then allow them to earn their way out of a hole leaves the banks bumper profits and then allows them to pay bumper bonuses. And the contrast between the two I think is a large contingent [of both the Occupy Wall Street protests and the Tea Party movement].”

Listen, the best remedy for such fools is to actually give them jobs.

Offer them work that require them hauling 40 lb bags of stone/dirt/whatever at Home Depot or something, and see how many are actually taking the offer. Soon you will find that they are not really interested in ‘actually working’.

Even if some really do want work, no many in such crowd will actually possess marketable skills that make them ‘hire-able’.

>> but the only way they could finally pull them off is to be completely vague about their purpose. <<

Have you read their platform / list of demands?

$20/hr min wage, excusing all debt, etc.?

It's so ridiculous, I can't decide if it's laughable or scary. No connection to real-world economics.

After reading their list, it's a wonder they didn't choose to be vague, instead.

What Soros is really doing is bringing down the weakest banks so that only a few banks survive and eventially merge into one.

He knows he can get both sides of the isle to rally against banks because of bank abuses and the fact that not many like the banks

Soros is completely controlled by the demonic
